Mac Danzig vs Takanori Gomi will be added to the card. Danzig confirmed the news on Twitter yesterday.
I finally have a fight!…I’ll be fighting Takanori Gomi in Macau, China on November 10th…

Gomi has struggled to stay on any kind of a win streak as of late. He’s 2-3 of his last five in the UFC. Danzig has also traded wins and losses in his last 5 in the UFC going 3-2. A win would put either of these fighters back on track.
Also added to the card, Thiago Silva vs Stanislav Nedkov. Stanislav is undefeated at 12-0 and also won his UFC debut almost a year ago at UFC 134 in Brazil. Visa problems have kept him from being able to take more fights in the UFC until now. The news was annouced on Sherdog Rewind yesterday.
Thiago Silva could be on the verge of receiving a pink slip from the UFC if he suffers another loss. He’s lost 3 of his last five and had his win at UFC 125 over Brandon Vera overturned to a No Contest for falsifying his sample for a drug test.
